SLO to Snow // China Peak

On March 29, 2017, in Wanderlove :: SLO, Wanderlust, by Kerry Cushman

One of the magics of living on the central coast of California is having beaches, mountains and vineyards all at our fingertips on any given day. Beach in the morning and ski in the afternoon. With this winter’s epic snow, I have no idea why it took us until March to find our way to the slopes {I think we were enjoying the vineyards, lol}… Thankfully before the season ended we joined some friends in an awesome RV ski road trip (aka SNOW FAM JAM!). Just over 3.5 hours from San Luis Obispo is China Peak ski resort and wow, it did not disappoint!

Fresh snowfall! Only 3.5 hours from SLO, kiddos woke up to a winter wonderland. By noon it was shorts and major sunscreen kind of weather. Love spring skiing in California!

Unplugged… cell service is pretty spotty at the mountain, which was amazing when you have this view. And family. And friends. And a slope-side General Sherman IPA.

Littles loving it! Great beginner slope with moving carpet for the kiddos {and 5 & under ski free!}. These three amigos rocked the bunny hill from open to close!

This is the LIFE… apre-ski West-coast style // China Peak is one of the few ski resorts to have RV parking on site! Did I mention just how cool this is? Ski all day and walk back to your home on wheels and soak it all in. So.Good.

We are all stoked to go back!! Such good family time. They have some pretty good specials happening and {as of last weekend} still have tons of snow. Passes for their 2017/2018 60th anniversary season are now on sale and if you buy now you can spring ski the rest of the year for free! Cant wait for our next SLO to snow adventure! xx
